Artwork statement:
The second painting in a series of three. The trees of life is inspired by a sojourn to northern Queensland, where I was inspired by the bright colours of the tropics and particularly the flora, like these coconut trees; I sought to capture their life and movement, the light and shadow, colours and textures of the plantlife. The fronds, branches and leaves of the trees moved languid on the warm breeze, their trunks gently swaying. I worked quickly with cobalt paint for the blue sky, with Langridge yellow and ultramarine blue for the foliage, with white highlights and some sgraffito for detail.
